Could your child’s school benefit from MOD funding?

Following an announcement from the Secretary of State for Defence, and in light of the ongoing rebasing from Germany, the MOD’s Education Support Fund (ESF) has been extended for another two years, with £3 million available in 2018/19.

The next round opens on Friday 14 September and closes at 6pm on Friday 19 October.

The fund is open to all publicly-funded schools, academies and free schools in the UK attended by Service children. Local authorities supporting these schools can also apply.

Let your child’s school know about this opportunity to access funding; application packs are available here.

For further information about the fund, email the Directorate Children and Young People (DCYP), who are responsible for administering the fund, at
